Benefits of employee volunteering

Benefits of employee volunteering

Volunteering has been proven to give excellent benefits for:

Staff development Getting involved in something different to their daily work, gives staff members the opportunity to learn new skills, take on a leadership role or more responsibility as well as providing invaluable local knowledge about the community where they work.

Staff morale Giving something back to the community improves staff morale. Furthermore, recognition for high quality and high impact volunteering gives employees a strong sense of fulfilment that will help retain great talent in your organisation.
